The fact that some people are used to the misspelling is irrelevant. Most
people who use your web site don't need to use HTTP specs directly and may
never even know about the misspelling. Someone unaware of the HTTP mistake
and just seeing your URL on links would think you're idiots.

How hard would it be to have a URL to the correct spelling as well as the
incorrect one?
